Double Versus Triple Award IGCSE (EDEXCEL)
Currently Triple Science students study the first year of the course alongside Double Science students, only splitting into dedicated Triple Science classes in Year 11. Entries for the IGCSE exams are not submitted until January in Year 11 so there is room for changes between Double and Triple courses. Please be aware that students initially registering for the double award will have to catch up missed work to switch to Triple Award. Switches would typically take place at Easter time in Year 10. Double and Triple science courses provide an excellent grounding for a range of university courses and careers including a range of Engineering courses, Medicine, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Architecture, Marine Biology, Nursing, Vet Science, Dentistry and Sports Sciences.
